History Museum Specialty Museum
The Concord Museum is the one place where all of Concord’s remarkable past is brought to life through artifacts from the Museum’s outstanding collection, rarely-seen images, period room settings, audio presentations, and creative hands-on activities. Highlights include "Why Concord?"—six history galleries accompanied by a film, "Exploring Concord"; a nationally-significant collection of decorative arts, featuring Concord-made clocks, silver and furniture; Native American stone tools; the 1775 lantern ordered by Paul Revere to be hung in the church steeple and made famous by Longfellow’s poem “Paul Revere’s Ride”; Emerson's study where he wrote his influential essays; and the world’s largest collection of Thoreau's possessions, including the desk on which he wrote “Civil Disobedience” and "Walden." In addition to the changing exhibitions in the Graham Gund-designed galleries, the Museum features a Museum Shop and a complete year-round calendar of programs for adults and children. The Museum is wheelchair accessible.

  • My tween daughter and I visited here on July 6 - it was right at opening and we had the place to ourselves and stayed for about 15 minutes. Make sure you stop to see the Lantern hung in the North Church. Everyone was very helpful and informative. This is included on the Boston Go Card. I recommend the stop.
